Need a Cooker? Use Your Cell Phone!
[Editor's Note: I've received 4 or 5 e-mails claiming that this article is a hoax. I haven't read the articles that claim this is a hoax yet, so I'll suspend judgment until I've had a chance to study the debunking claims. If I'm convinced that the demonstration presented here was a hoax, then we'll call it a hoax and move on. However, unless one is careful in duplicating an experiment down to the tiniest detail, it's very easy to misinterpret your FAILED experiment by claiming that the other guy was running a hoax.
This failure to reproduce an experiment properly and exactingly is rather common among groups that have an ulterior motive to convince you that cell phones are 'harmless'. The drug companies have rigged "studies" and "trials' for at least 50 years to "prove" that their products are efficatious and safe, while claiming that natural health supplements are worthless. Linus Pauling tore many such phony drug company 'studies' to shreds in several of his books on Vitamin C. Moral? Don't jump to conclusions just because someone SAYS "it ain't so".
'There is another video that shows pop corn kernels popping off on the table in the presence of four surrounding cell phones. I append that story to this article and let you know my thoughts after I study the debunkers...Ken Adachi]

Many organizations including the cell phone industry often downplay the risk of cell phone radiation to the brain. Results from short-term studies were used to convince consumers that use of a cell phone is not associated with brain tumors or cancer, which only develop decades after exposure. To be fair, no one knows exactly how much harm a cell phone can do to a person.
Recently, however, new media has reported a study showing the radiation from cell phones is so full of energy they can be used to cook eggs. In the experiment, researchers placed one egg in a porcelain cup (because it is easy to conduct heat), and put one cell phone on one side and another cell phone on the other. The researchers then called from one cell phone to another and kept the cell phones on after connecting.
During the first 15 minutes, nothing changed. After 25 minutes, however, the egg shell started to become hot and at 40 minutes, the surface of the egg became hard and bristled. Researchers found the protein in the egg had become solid although the egg yolk was still in liquid form.
After 65 minutes, the whole egg was well cooked. The study shows how scary cell phone radiation is. People should try to avoid use of cell phones. Although so far no one has proved the radiation from cell phones can cause something clinically significant. By the same token, there has been no one who can disprove the existence of such a risk. Children should be forbidden from cell phone use because they still grow their brains and are particularly vulnerable to radiation. © 2004-2005 by foodconsumer.org unless otherwise specified _____
How Two Russian Journalists Cooked An Egg With Their Mobile Phones
Vladimir Lagovski and Andrei Moiseynko from Komsomolskaya Pravda Newspaper in Moscow decided to learn first-hand how harmful cell phones are. There is no magic in cooking with your cell phone.
The secret is in the radio waves that the cell phone radiates. The journalists created a simple microwave structure as shown in the picture. They called from one cell phone to the other and left both phones on talking mode. They placed a tape recorder next to phones to imitate sounds of speaking so the phones would stay on.
After 15 minutes: The egg became slightly warm
25 minutes: The egg became very warm.
40 minutes: The egg became very hot.
65 minutes: The egg was cooked. (As you can see.)
